American Red Cross Blood Drive

Herkimer College to Host American Red Cross Blood Drive

Herkimer College will host an American Red Cross blood drive on Thursday, February 16, 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Alumni Hall, located in the Robert McLaughlin College Center.

The American Red Cross is asking donors to consider a Power Red Cell donation for blood types O Negative, O Positive, A Negative, or B Negative, but all blood types are essential.  Power Red Cell donation resembles a regular blood donation, except a special machine allows you to donate two units of red blood cells during one donation while returning your plasma and platelets safely back to you. As of October 2022, the new minimum height requirement for females to be eligible for a Power Red donation has changed from 5’5 to 5’3.

All donors will receive a complimentary $10 Amazon gift card by email courtesy of Amazon. In addition, all donors will automatically be entered for a chance to win a trip for two to Clearwater Beach, Florida. For more information visit: rcblood.org/heart

To schedule an appointment, email brownvl@herkimer.edu or visit redcrossblood.org. Appointments are encouraged, but walk-ins are also welcome. Donors are also encouraged to sign up for RapidPass to complete the pre-screening process from home. Sign-up can be found at redcrossblood.org/rapidpass.

Canal Side Inn Little Falls NY | Mohawk Valley Today

Mohawk Valley Today places to go

We had a great week beginning with photos at the The Café at Stone Mill and Canal Side Inn both located in Canal Place in Little Falls. Also on our list was taking photos at Retro Ruby’s Photography on N. Main Street in Herkimer. Taking photos here was a ton of fun as there are some really awesome sets and photo props that just made our time there a blast.

A Biologist, English Professor, & Psychologist Walk Into a Bar…

This One City, One Book event, was one that we didn’t want to miss! We arrived early and enjoyed a very nice meal at Ruggiero’s Trattoria. Once the event started, everyone knew they were in for a treat. Ruggiero’s hosted a great crowd and we were happy to gather with friends while discovering more about the book and each other.

Out and About in St. Johnsville, Canajoharie, & Fort Plain

Starting on Route 5, we headed to St. Johnsville for Parkside Drive Inn. We were so happy about Parkside’s season opening and couldn’t pass up their signature salad. On to Canajoharie, we had an opportunity to talk with Dorine about Picture Perfect Fine Art Gallery and how they do on-site framing at their location on Erie Blvd.

On Canal Street in Fort Plain

Chef Aaron’s garlic and cheddar grits with sautéed mushroom and spinach.
The mushrooms include shiitake, oyster and beech mushrooms, for a delicious vegetarian dish.

In Fort Plain, we stopped in to say “Hi!” to Rebecca at Highwheeler Coffee and were thrilled to be able to chat over the best freshly ground coffee that just hit the spot. While there, we had a chance to talk with Chef Aaron at The Table at Fort Plain. Chef Aaron and his team are already planning for Mother’s Day. Chef Aaron shared with us about how people throughout the Mohawk Valley go to The Table as a destination. Because Fort Plain is midway between Albany and Utica, many travel to The Table at Fort Plain to meet with friends and family while enjoying a delicious meal made from the best locally sourced ingredients.

We’re out and about every week and look forward to meeting you in our travels through the Mohawk Valley.

Our week in Little Falls and Herkimer

This past week we started getting out and about in Little Falls, NY, going to Il Caffé on Main Street, where we had something warm to drink along with other folks enjoying the sunny day.

Renewed and Rescued Herkimer NY | Mohawk Valley Today

Renewed and Rescued

We were so glad to have met the owner of Renewed and Rescued at 142 N. Main Street in Herkimer, located in what was a department store. We got to look around in all of the wonderful spaces featuring small furniture, home decor, Prima transfers, Dixie Belle paint, vintage glass, collectibles, and so much more. We were happy to take photos and to find something for our own home.

Wakefield Furniture Herkimer NY | Mohawk Valley Today

Wakefield Furniture

Our next stop was Wakefield Furniture where we were greeted warmly as they were getting ready for their Grand Opening. Wakefield Furniture is also located in a renovated department store right next store at 138 North Main Street. We love that Wakefield Furniture is locally owned and offers free delivery to many locations throughout the Mohawk Valley.

Emmanuel Episcopal Church LIttle Falls NY | Mohawk Valley Today

Emmanuel Episcopal Church

We headed back to Little Falls where we met with Adam at Emmanuel Episcopal Church to find out more about the church and the many services it offers the local community. Everyone was so gracious and we loved learning so much about the church, ongoing renovations at the Rectory, and the church’s history in Little Falls.

That Little Place on Main LIttle Falls NY | Mohawk Valley Today-3

That Little Place on Main

While driving through Little Falls on the way to Emmanuel Episcopal Church, we were thrilled to see That Little Place on Main’s sandwich board announcing Friday night baked or fried haddock dinners were being served.


All of this to say, we ended our day with a delicious Haddock Dinner where lots of folks had the same idea. We were quite content to be in the midst of this diner’s happy atmosphere and finished the day with Carrot Cake to take home. (We were admittedly full from the delicious dinner, but couldn’t pass up Gary’s Carrot Cake!)
